Hmm, yes this would be very cool.  Perhaps something like a
"shrink-factor" that specifies how much an image or other replaced
content can be scaled down to fit the page...?  That way the author can
control whether or not the scaling occurs and by how much.

So I'm laying out a long document with CSS. It has a lot of images. The
problem I'm running into is that sometimes an image is just a little too
big to fit on the page, so it jumps to the next page, leaving 1/3 of the
page blank. If I were laying this out by hand, I'd scale the image down
a bit so it would fit. It'd be nice if CSS could do this automatically.
